Ludwig Feuchtwanger (1885-1947): an intellectual from Weimar until Nazism (Edgar J. Feuchtwanger)

Edgar Feuchtwanger draws his father Ludwig's intellectual biography, using both his personal recollections and his knowledge as an historian. Having been the scientific director of an important publishing house, Duncker & Humblot, from 1914 until 1936, Ludwig Feuchtwanger was connected with several relevant intellectuals of inter-war Germany. The author stresses the significance of his father's Jewish origins and culture, which he rejected as a way of life, while preserving a persistent intellectual interest in them. The memoir also analyses Ludwig Feuchtwanger's bewilderment when confronted by the Nazi persecutions, and his renewed commitment to the Jewish community in the late Thirties.
